Roaring Camp is something special in the way of family recreation. It is an old goldmining camp on the Mokelumne

River. In the past, it was accessibly only by horseback. Roaring Camp was once a camp for FortyNiners, but since it was so inaccessible, most of the gold still remains.

Visitors can see our operating gold mine and can mine their own gold by panning, sluicing, metal detecting, and dry washing.

In the Mokelumne Canyon, the three forks of the Mokelumne River come together. It is a river unsurpassed in natural beauty. 

The water is so clear that one can watch the tadpoles and fish swim. There are waterfalls and natural rock formations forty feet high. 

There is also a quiet, secluded "swimming hole" with rocks of varying sizes, ideal for diving by those who dare! Be sure to bring your fishing gear.

The fishing here is excellent!
